Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has launched an enquiry into allegations of corruption against former vice chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science and Technology University (BSMRSTU), Prof Khondoker Md Nasiruddin.

ACC Director Sheikh Md Fanafilla arrived at BSMRSTU campus on Tuesday to investigate and collect evidence of corruption in the two days of his stay there.

On the first day of his investigation, he interviewed teachers and other varsity staff. He provided a form to his interviewees to document information available to them regarding corruption and irregularities of the former VC.

BSMRSTU Registrar Prof Dr Md Nuruddin Ahmed said: "We have formed a five member committee to assist the ACC director with documents and information he needs for the investigation."

Previously on September 30, the VC stepped down amid student protests when a probe committee formed by the University Grants Commission (UGC) found evidence of irregularities and corruption on the part of the VC.
